Sunday Brunch Company

Jayne Entwistle
Director
Born in Blackpool, England Jayne has taken a circuitous route through Canada, Tel Aviv and a goodly portion of America to land herself in L.A.  Shortly after arriving she was introduced to Patrick Bristow and attended a performance of L.A Extemporential, improvised noir and said out-loud, I want to do that! Several classes and a year later she was folded into Improvatorium and performed in Noir Town and No Place Like Rome. In Death, Lies & Alibis she played Dorothea Stack, the aging Miss Marple-esque sleuth and felt it to be the greatest improv challenge of her life. She also performed in Zombiénce as ‘the litle girl’.

She teaches various levels of improv with improvatorium.  Outside of the theater she is a professional Voice Actor, narrating audiobooks for Random House as well as voicing various commercials, video games and animations. She is excited for the imminent release of “Dark Games” – a thriller in which she plays a psychotic Mother alongside Danny Trejo and Boo Boo Stewart (the next star of Twilight’s Eclipse).  Visit Jayne’s website at www.thejayneshow.com

Belen Greene
Growing up with hippie parents and assorted, temporary siblings in the (formerly) militantly counter-culture city of Santa Cruz, California provides Belen with an often unique sense of normal and lack of appropriate boundaries. She’s seriously stoked to be a part of Sunday Brunch at The Improvatorium and is most grateful to Jayne Entwistle and Patrick Bristow for their teaching, support and skills. A classically trained actress, she holds a B.A. in Theater and French Studies from Mills College. The bulk of her professional acting work has been on the stage: favorite roles include Sissy in Come Back to the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, Ilse in Spring Awakening, Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest and Bananas in House of Blue Leaves (television credits include Nash Bridges, The Net and Space: Above & Beyond). Lately, she’s worked with The Antaeus Company and is a member of their A2 Ensemble. She’s also attended “École nationale de cirque Annie Fratellini” in Paris where she swung on the trapeze, and has lived on an organic farm in New Zealand, just for fun. She currently lives in Echo Park with her boyfriend, large dog and abusive cat.

Nick Hounslow
Nicholas James Hounslow is perhaps best known for his time spent as a member of a little known English boy band of which he refuses to ever mention the name of again. He traveled throughout England’s premier shopping malls delighting young girls with his vocal prowess until he retired and hopped the pond over to America where Nicholas became Nick. Nick is perhaps best known for playing “Peter” the angst ridden polo player in “Britney Spear’s Radar” video. Or perhaps he is best know for his role as “Billy” the philandering playboy in “Hillary Duff’s Stranger” video. Perhaps you may have noticed Nick as a dancing ballerina on “The Jay Leno Show” or perhaps seen his abs on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Perhaps Nick is best known for playing a straight family man turned gay zombie in Funny or Die’s “The Gaze.” Yet perhaps, regardless of his endless award winning performances, Nick is perhaps, mostly thrilled to be a part of the Improvatorium’s Sunday Brunch!!

Kerry Kimble
Yes, she is Richard Kimble’s daughter and running from the law was exhausting! After majoring in journalism at Georgia State University, Kerry moved out to L.A. Deciding she didn’t like to take herself too seriously, She signed on to star in 32 episodes of “Muscle Beach” one of the first webisodes ever to be launched. “It was a fun show, but even better blackmail material”. She’s also worked on numerous indie films which never saw the light of day, but has been fortunate to work with some amazing A list actors and Superman-the new one. She started studying Improv at the Groundlings, but fell in love with the Improvatorim after seeing The Improvatorium present “Noir Town”. The love affair with improv continues. Also a budding screenwriter, she’s just finished her first rom-com which aspires to join the great cult comedies of our time.

Sarah McChesney
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, raised in Coventry, England and returning triumphantly to the US as a teen made Sarah very confused and gave her an accent like Mrs. Doubtfire. She eventually moved to Los Angeles, but not before living for a short time in Alaska where she enjoyed a scenic view of the Alaska Pipeline from her bedroom window. Once in Los Angeles, Sarah trained at The Groundlings where something awoke inside her which she thought was the second coming of Christ but then realized it was just that she really, really liked doing improv. Sarah has appeared in a few things that no one really cares about, but most of her work is behind the scenes as a writer/producer for lots of really classy reality shows.

Fox Michaels
A graduate of UNLV’s theatre department with a BA in theatre arts, Fox Michaels moved to Los Angeles (and partied like it was): 1999. He has performed in a spec commercial for Miller Lite, directed by Full House’s Dave Coulier. He recently performed in a short film, called I Almost Married a Monster for the New York Film Academy, Universal Studios Campus. He can be seen onstage as part of “Sunday Brunch”, an improv group at The Improvatorium in Hollywood and online at any time in his comedy webisode series featuring his alter ego and titled: “buster” with it’s own YouTube Channel and Blog: “buster” consists of bite sized comedy snacks and is pixelated for your pleasure.

Kate Payne
Kate Payne was born and raised in Marlboro Massachusetts, the same town as John Rock, the gynecologist who is co-credited with developing the Pill. Like Rock, Kate fancies herself a trailblazer. She graduated from University of Massachusetts without honors, traveled to far off places like Laos with thoughtful intentions of saving the world and ultimately moved to Los Angeles to stare at herself in a mirror and perfect her acceptance speeches. Along with her mirror, Kate has appeared in “Kissing Cousins” & “The Gaze.” Her theatrical credits include John Patrick Shanley’s “Four Dogs & a Bone,” Harold Pinter’s “Celebration,” Simon Mawdsley’s “Audacity.” Kate also produced and performed in “The 24 Hour Hollywood Rush.” If you are still reading this you can check out more at

Pete Porte
Peter, a first generation American, grew up in Greenwood Lake, NY to a Polish mother and an Italian Father, both of whom worked liked dogs to give their children the American dream. Like most Polish mother’s, Peter’s wanted him to grow up to be an actor. But when it was time to go to college Peter defied his mother and instead went to NYU to study business. It nearly killed her, so much so, they completely omitted him from their annual Porte Christmas Newsletter.
Walking across the stage to accept his degree in Business, Peter looked out to all the proud parents, only to see his weeping hysterically. He knew at that moment he could never fulfill his dream of world business domination and instead became an actor. His credits include: Sky (Mamma Mia Broadway Tour), A Pretty Filthy Evening (Kirk Douglas Theatre), CSI:Miami, Cold Case, Medium, but perhaps best known for his acclaimed portrayal of Hubie in Invincible: The Legend of Billy Jean: The Musical. He holds fast to a dreams of one day playing a businessman on T.V.

Brian Savage
Brian is proud to be an inaugural member of Sunday Brunch. He has studied with Patrick Bristow and is grateful to Patrick and Jayne for giving him this opportunity.

David Skelly
Mild-mannered screenwriter by day, vigilante actor by night (and on Sunday afternoons), David is proud to be a part of Improvatorium’s SUNDAY BRUNCH improv troupe. He is also a member of the Jim Henson Company’s puppet improv workshops, and was cast as a puppeteer in Disney’s upcoming feature film, THE MUPPETS, starring Amy Adams and Jason Segel. David got his start building and designing puppets for SESAME STREET and THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL, and was part of the story development team at Pixar Animation Studios on TOY STORY 2, MONSTERS, INC., and CARS. When David isn’t improvising, he’s writing feature films, TV episodes, and comic books with his wife and writing partner, Jennifer — or building sandcastles with his two-year-old son, Zak. www.davidskelly.com
